Figure 2: T3 inhibits the transcription of MUC5AC in HBE16 cells. The luciferase activity was determined as described in Materials and Methods. Control group: different MUC5AC promoter plasmids in the absence of T3; experimental group: different MUC5AC promoter plasmids in the presence of T3. 𝑃 < 0 . 0 1 versus pGL3-basic control group; 𝑃 > 0 . 0 5 versus pGL3-basic control group; # 𝑃 > 0 . 0 5 versus the same promoter control group; ## 𝑃 < 0 . 0 1 versus the same promoter control group.
